The following is the caption attached to the image which we received from our image provider, Flash90. The thing is, this service is not attempting to support one position or another, it simply tries to generate the kind of caption that would both capture accurately what’s in the picture, and do so in a fashion that would encourage a news editor to use it.
Here’s their caption for the above image:
“Jewish men walk on the Temple Mount, May 16, 2013. The one on the right is seen praying. They are heavily guarded and their presence on the Temple Mount is hotly contested by Muslims in Jerusalem and around the world.”
The one on the right is seen praying.
Imagine, on God’s planet there is one spot where Jewish prayer is a violation of the public order, which could result in expulsion from the area, if not worse.
Anyone who believes that our diasporah is over, is invited to recite this line, privately or in large groups: “The one on the right is seen praying.”
Send out the dogs, tear at his flesh, drag him away. The one on the right is seen praying.
